What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is still in active development, we are looking for community feedback to help the game reach its full potential. The game is very playable, but many features (including a light storyline) will be added during the early access period.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to be in early access for approximately 6-8 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We have a publically avaliable roadmap and trello board where the community can follow our progress and offer feedback and suggestions. A few of the big ticket items we intend to add are as follows:
  • A fully voice acted storyline and intro sequence.
  • Extra tools and equipment.
  • Improved AI awareness and capabilities.
  • A larger map and more points of interest to discover.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All features listed in the "about this game" section are implemented and available in the current version of Folklore Hunter. These include:
  • Full multiplayer co-op support
  • Gathering resources / hidden caches
  • Minimap system
  • Cameras that can be placed and viewed through
  • Advanced hunting / tracking system
  • 2 types of natural wildlife
  • Trapping / bait system
  • A main threat who stalks you who must be hunted and killed.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price a small amount after leaving early access. This will only occur once a substantial amount of content is added and the game is stable.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have a developer discord community that we stay active in. We also love feedback via the forums or reviews.”
